Coffee is largely produced in the Coffee Belt, located between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, where countries such as Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia and Vietnam have provided the best climate for coffee trees, which need constant heat to survive. Armstrong recently joined a group of farmers taking part in the largest-ever coffee growing endeavor in the United States. "It seems more logical to invest in new coffee varieties that could be grown in the same current geographies," he said. Rowland said researchers are planting coffee trees close to citrus, an intercropping technique used in other parts of the world as larger trees help hold winds and provide shade to coffee trees. That, in turn, could help in the selection of optimal coffee varieties for the region in the future.

Food spending in the region will hit more than $8 trillion by the start of the next decade — up from $4 trillion in 2019 — becoming the world's largest food and beverage market, the group's "Asia Food Challenge Report 2021" said Tuesday. By 2030, Asia is expected to be home to 4.5 billion people and 65% of the world's middle class. Folks want healthier food, they want safer food, they want to buy online. A $1.5 trillion investment opportunityThe rapid uptick puts pressure on an already fragile food ecosystem, which has been under immense pressure since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. According to the report, it will take $1.55 trillion of investment by 2030 across the entire value chain to meet the region's swelling food demand.

REUTERS/Lee SmithSummary CO2 prices will rise sharplyUK pays fertiliser maker CF to reopen plants temporarilyPoultry plants would have closed, UK saysLONDON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Britain warned the food industry on Wednesday that carbon dioxide prices would rise sharply after offering tens of millions of dollars of state support to a fertiliser company to avert a food supply crunch. "We need the market to adjust, the food industry knows there's going to be a sharp rise in the cost of carbon dioxide," Environment Secretary George Eustice told Sky News. He said the food industry would have to accept that the price of carbon dioxide would rise sharply, to around 1,000 pounds ($1,365) a tonne from 200 pounds a tonne. "So a big, sharp rise," Eustice said. He said the impact on food prices would be negligible.

The most recent advisory from the CDC about acute flaccid myelitis, the polio-like condition mentioned in the clip, was released on Aug. 4, 2020 here . The latest peak was in 2018 with 238 cases in 42 states, according to the CDC advisory. When the CDC released the advisory about acute flaccid myelitis, the vaccines were not yet approved for public use or being widely administered. Reuters found no other advisory or warning from the CDC since the release in August 2020. The CDC advisory about acute flaccid myelitis is from August 2020 and unrelated to the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is safe and effective for children 5 to 11, the companies announced, but parents may be wary even if the F.D.A. Uptake among older children has lagged, and polling indicates reservations among a significant number of parents. Only about 40 percent of children ages 12 to 15 have been fully vaccinated so far, compared with 66 percent of adults, according to federal data. Image If authorized by the F.D.A., the vaccine could be a game changer for millions of American families with young children. The “definitely not” group grew to about 25 percent in parents of children ages 5 to 11, and 30 percent among parents of under-5s.

A COVID-19 booster shot that may protect against multiple variants is being tested in humans. A COVID-19 booster vaccine that could protect against multiple virus variants at once is being tested in humans for the first time. COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna use mRNA, which teaches our body how to make a protein that triggers an immune response, but it cannot self-replicate. Professor Ian Bruce, chair at the Manchester COVID-19 Research Rapid Response Group, said in a statement that future studies will examine GRT-R910's efficacy in other-vulnerable populations. On Friday, the Food and Drug Administration recommended an extra dose of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine for fully vaccinated Americans aged 65 and older, and for younger people at risk of severe illness.

He has called for Democrats to raise the debt ceiling on their own through a special budget process. Republicans supported raising the debt ceiling three times during the Trump administration. Yes, you've seen this movie before: President Joe Biden and McConnell played major parts in it too. Spurred on by the tea-party movement, Republicans sought to use raising the debt ceiling as a political cudgel against the Obama White House in 2011. Anxiety about congressional action over the debt ceiling didn't help matters either.

And, when a booster of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine is given, the strength of protection against COVID-19 further increases." "The Johnson & Johnson single-shot COVID-19 vaccine showed vaccine effectiveness against COVID-19-related hospitalizations at 86% for participants younger than 60 years, and 78% for those 60 years and older," the company said. Barouch, who has worked with Janssen to test the vaccine but who was not directly involved in the three studies, said people who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should be reassured by the data. Johnson & Johnson has said it will submit all of this data to the FDA for potential consideration for adding a booster dose, and perhaps for consideration to authorize a two-dose regimen. It circulated widely in South Africa but has been outcompeted in the US by Delta, which does not appear to escape immune protection as well.

Johnson & Johnson's Covid-19 booster shot is 94% effective when administered two months after the first dose in the U.S., the company announced Tuesday, adding that the booster increases antibody levels four to six times higher than one shot alone. A J&J booster dose given six months out from the first shot appears to be potentially even more protective against Covid, the company said, generating antibodies twelve-fold higher four weeks after the boost, regardless of age. When given as a booster, the vaccine remained well-tolerated, with side effects generally consistent with those seen after the initial dose, according to J&J. The 94% efficacy rate for the J&J booster shot is for the U.S., the company said. Globally, a booster shot given about two months after the first dose is 75% effective against symptomatic infection, according to the company.

Zach Rash cofounded the delivery-robot company Coco in April 2020 after graduating from UCLA. While rivals like Nuro are still beta testing robot food delivery, his startup is scaling quickly. "There's probably a better way to do this in the future, and I thought that future is going to be robots," Rash, who studied robotics at the university, said. "There were not really any robots out in the world," Rash said, specifically in regard to food delivery. So he and his UCLA buddy Brad Squicciarini cofounded their own delivery-robot company in April 2020 — initially dubbed Cyan Robotics.

China's biotech industry has surged in recent years following regulatory and stock-market changes. Growing Chinese biotech companies quietly have begun setting up shop a few miles down the road. Publicly traded Chinese biotech companies have a total market value of about $180 billion, up from $1 billion in 2016, according to a McKinsey analysis published in Endpoints. Just a few years ago, its drug industry could be described as sleepy. So the nation's biotech industry stands to have significant influence on the world.

On Monday, Pfizer announced that a smaller dose of Pfizer's Covid vaccine is safe and generates a "robust" immune response in a clinical trial of kids ages 5 to 11. Woodcock declined to offer a specific timeline, but other experts weighed in on Monday to provide a realistic projection. The estimate is based on how long it took the FDA to approve the vaccine for kids in the older age group, 12 to 15. Vaccines for kids require a "different formulation," Woodcock said. For the Covid vaccine, she said, that means finding a dosage that's appropriate for their developing immune systems.

World Health Organization officials repeated their protests Tuesday against Covid-19 booster shots for the general public, even as the U.S. readies this week to authorize their distribution across a wide swath of America. The WHO strongly opposes the widespread rollout of booster shots, asking that wealthier nations instead give extra doses to countries with minimal vaccination rates. The U.S. has already administered nearly 2 million boosters nationwide, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and an advisory panel to the Food and Drug Administration unanimously recommended boosters on Friday for anyone 65 and older. Ryan reiterated the WHO's support for third doses administered to the elderly, medically vulnerable people and anyone needing an immune system boost after a full Covid vaccine regimen. He reiterated the organization's calls for a moratorium on booster doses through the end of the year to give nation's enough time to immunize at least 40% of its population against Covid.

Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC he anticipates the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may soon offer greater clarity on who will be eligible for Covid booster doses. Gottlieb, a Pfizer board member, elaborated on the FDA and CDC's booster approval process during an interview Tuesday on "The News with Shepard Smith." "They provide granular guidance to physicians and patients, and they interpret the recommendations that come out of the Food and Drug Administration," Gottlieb said of the CDC. "So for example, they might say that they might enumerate the kinds of severe conditions that would qualify someone for a booster." But the committee subsequently voted unanimously to approve boosters for the medically vulnerable and anyone 65 and over.

Amazon gave away cars and $100,000 cash bonuses to a handful of vaccinated warehouse workers as part of its running sweepstakes to encourage employees to get inoculated. Last week, three warehouse and Whole Foods employees were given $100,000 cash awards for getting vaccinated, Amazon said in a separate Instagram post. Amazon in August launched a sweepstakes to reward employees who'd gotten the Covid-19 vaccine and encourage holdouts to get their shots. Amazon hasn't required its front-line workers to get vaccinated, but these sweepstakes serve as a nudge to encourage vaccination. Amazon is eager for its hundreds of thousands of front-line workers to get vaccinated as the Covid delta variant spreads rapidly across the globe.

FILE PHOTO: A logo of CVS Health is displayed on a monitor above the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the opening bell in New York, U.S., December 5, 2017. REUTERS/Lucas Jackson(Reuters) - CVS Health Corp said on Monday it would fill as many as 25,000 clinical and retail jobs ahead of the flu season and as the United States prepares to administer booster COVID-19 vaccine shots. CVS recently raised minimum hourly wages for its staff as retailers across the United States scramble to retain and lure more people back to work amid a nationwide labor shortage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. CVS, rival Walgreens Boots Alliance and other pharmacies that plan to administer boosters are likely to see more traffic between November and January, putting them under increasing pressure to hire and retain employees. CVS, which has administered more than 34 million COVID-19 vaccines and over 32 million tests, said in March last year it would hire 50,000 employees to assist patients and customers during the coronavirus outbreak.

Pfizer-BioNTech said on Monday that the companies' two-dose Covid-19 vaccine was safe and showed a "robust" antibody response in children ages 5 to 11. No Covid vaccines have yet been authorized or approved for use in children under 12. More than 466.5 million Covid vaccine doses have been given in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It was the first Covid vaccine to pass this final regulatory hurdle. Johnson & Johnson and Moderna, whose Covid vaccines are in use in the U.S., are also researching the effects of their Covid vaccines in pediatric trials.

The Covid-19 pandemic has supercharged the role of chief information officers, accelerating a shift from backroom technicians to front-office decisionmakers, as companies’ operations are increasingly shaped by technology. PREVIEWBy contrast, salaries for chief financial officers—who CIOs often report to—are expected to rise 0.3% next year, to $242,000, the firm said. Markus Voss, chief information officer at DHL Supply Chain. Scott Spradley, executive vice president and chief technology officer at Tyson Foods Inc., said the pandemic pushed the meatpacking giant to sharpen its focus on data-based insight and decision-making systems. More CIOs are also getting named to corporate boards, adding vice president or executive vice president to their titles.

Fruits and vegetables thrown into a waste bin Peter Dazeley | The Image Bank | Getty ImagesSINGAPORE — Covid-19 is a wake-up call that's highlighted the urgency to fight the world's food waste crisis, experts and industry players told CNBC. Coming out of the pandemic, more hotels and airlines are now tackling food waste and putting sustainability "front and center" on their priority list, said Rayner Loi, co-founder and chief executive of Singapore-based AI food waste management start-up, Lumitics. This reduces food waste by up to 40%, and food costs by up to 8%, Lumitics found. Turning food waste into 'surprise boxes'Another player fighting food waste is Yindii, a Thai anti-food waste startup. Yindii founder and French entrepreneur Louis-Alban Batard-Dupre described Bangkok's food waste situation as "catastrophic," where only 2% of food waste is recycled.
